Christmas Morning Punch

Sharing is caring!

This delicious Christmas Morning Punch pairs orange juice, apple cider, cranberry juice, and warm winter spices for an easy non-alcoholic punch you can enjoy year round! 

My Christmas mornings consist of me sitting around in my jammies enjoying my hot cup of coffee. But sometimes, I like to drink a little something else that is warm and inviting. That is where this punch was born.

Christmas morning is meant for so many good things like my Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole or my baked apple cinnamon french toast.

Here's another make ahead recipe for the holiday season: Christmas morning punch. This recipe can be served warm or cold. I prefer it warm. It just makes you feel all tingly on the inside.

Ingredients in Christmas Morning Punch

This punch is so simple to make and requires just a few ingredients:

  • 100% Cranberry Juice Cocktail
  • Orange Juice
  • Apple Cider
  • Orange Slices, Cinnamon Sticks, Cloves and fresh ground nutmeg
  • Honey
  • Fresh orange slices and cranberries for garnish (optional)

Mix everything (except orange slices and cranberries) into a big pot on the stove and let it heat through until it is warm. Then pour into glasses and top with garnish and enjoy!
